Bancroft Beer  |  2.5 / 4 / 6 

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with 2-row and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punch notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin, with a clean and crisp finish. 4.20% abv

Estimated Antler  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Our Nelson Pale Ale makes its triumphant return to the taps! Estimated Antler is Brewed with 2-row and Vienna malts. We hop it in the kettle with Simcoe and Citra to compliment, and then hit it with a blast of Nelson Sauvin in the FV once fermentation with our house ale yeast is complete. This batch is ripping with notes of Sour Diesel infused Sauvignon Blanc, freshly cut chamomile flowers, and cool grassy breezes. We’re really happy to have this one back! 5% abv

Nectomancer  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

An IPA dealing in the Dark Arts of tropical fruit forward character. Brewed with a very healthy portion of malted white wheat and flaked oats, and then hopped hot side with one of our old favorites, Motueka. Fermented with our house ale yeast and then dry hopped with a newer cool dude hop on the block, Nectaron. Nectaron is a New Zealand varietal that has relatively recently hit the market which has really been picking up in popularity over the course of this past year. We’re getting boatloads of crazy passion fruit, thick banana smoothies, soft white peaches, and glimmering coconut flesh. 6% abv

Flying Press  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Hazy boi IPA hopped abundantly with Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Motueka. Hyper tropical lychee slathered on white bread, dragon fruit, mini pineapples, lime zest, and just a dash of guava in the finish. 6.5% abv

Bīru Bier  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Japanese rice lager brewed with what is becoming one of our favorite pilsner malts and 33% puffed rice. Hopped gently with German Spalt Select and fermented low and slow with our favorite lager yeast before weeks and weeks of lagering at frigid temps. Incredibly clean, light and refreshing, yet maintains a beautifully delicate toasty rice cracker malt profile balanced by a nuanced floral spice and snappy carbonation. 4% abv

GO BIRD  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Keller pils brewed with all continental pilsner malt and fermented with our house lager yeast. Hopped abundantly with German Tettnanger and Hallertauer Mittelfrüher. Dry crackery malt with a hint of fermentation esters, straw grass, herbal, spicy and crisp in the finish. 5.2% abv   GO BIRD

The Black Dog Runs at Night   |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Schwarzbier brewed with German pilsner and Briess Midnight Wheat malts, hopped very gently with Hallertauer Mittelfüher, and fermented with our house lager strain before cold conditioning for many moons. Pours dark as midnight on a moonless night with ruby highlights. Mysteriously drinkable with notes of cocoa, chicory, light birch beer, and a pleasing dry minerality in the finish. 5.6% abv.

Chadwick  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

OG Philly style porter brewed with a special blend of roasty malts over layers of 2-row, Munich, Vienna, and Maris Otter. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and fermented with our house ale strain. Rich notes of toffee, bitter sweet chocolate covered espresso beans, and that classic English Earl Grey tea finish. 6% abv.

Cinnamon Vanilla Huy Vietnamese Coffee Stout  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Huy, our rich and creamy Vietnamese Coffee Stout, is back! Over the past few years we’ve had fun playing with some different adjunct treatments, so we decided to get into the Fall mood with this batch andadd Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans and a kiss of cinnamon along with the final addition of coffee post fermentation. Much like a dash of salt in your favorite dish, the vanilla adds to the already cocoa-forward malt profile bringing out intense bittersweet bakers chocolate depth,
while the subtle touch of cinnamon lends an ever so slightly warming spiciness in the finish. It’s kinda like Adult Yoo-hoo. Poured perfectly smooth from the nitro line. 6% abv *contains lactose!

The Keg is Always Cleaner  |  3 / 5 / 8

The Keg is Always Cleaner is the keg conditioned draft version of our green glass dry hopped grisette, The Glass is Always Greener. Ironically, due to the packaging in kegs we strictly use for our mixed fermentation program, TKIAC is already showing pleasant signs of Orval-like complexity compared to its green glass counterpart. Wisps of tanned leather and underripe pineapple are mixing with the delicate floral spicy base, and it’s a real delight. Naturally carbonated in the keg up to 3 volumes of c02, it’s quite the bubbly refresher. 5% abv

The Glass is Always Greener (750mL bottle)  |  12

This lovely little grisette is brewed from a simple base of European pilsner malt and a little white wheat, with a blend of aged and fresh old world hop varietals. It then gets fermented with our favorite saison monoculture in one of our mixed fermentation tanks before being dry hopped with East Kent Goldings. Conditioned properly in the bottle to 3 volumes of c02. TGIAG is our ode to the classic green glass farmhouse ales of Belgium. It begins with a delicate floral malt base followed by layers of jasmine blossom, green tea, and lemon balm before a bone dry prickly mineral finish. It is dangerously quaffable. 5% abv
